Rocks and patronage

The saga of the Belongil rock walls has entered the realm if high farce.

Not only has the state government withdrawn their paltry $300k, the landowners’ wobbly offerings are still moot, the booster councillors have ratted any ratepayer funds they can find and still the amounts required are badly lacking.

And this was the case before the sand transfer system and groins entered the equation – who is going to pay for the construction and operation of this little brain explosion?

Yes ,I know the minister has inexplicably put the sand pumping on hold and one has to ponder whether he was conned by his bureaucrats or ‘persuaded’ by the Belongil lobby – but it still won’t cut it financially.

At some stage one would have thought that at least Cr Ibrahim would get his head out of the rocks as on occasions he can exhibit an IQ at least equal to the sum of the three stooges. But perhaps the lure of election funding keeps him in the fold.

But just think Sol, if you were to accept the reality of the situation you wouldn’t have to vote for Rose’s increasing loopy grand visions.

    There is a place between a rock and a hard place, and that place is on a seat in Council Tom where the spray comes up and hits the rocks of Gibraltar that don’t move.
    Why are you not in Council where you can do some good?
